My husband and I stayed here for a week in November 2012-first time in Bali. With a special deal it worked out to be around $50 per night,so we really weren't expecting too much. We were surrpised at the standard of cleanliness and great selection of food for breakfast.All staff seemed very young, efficient and very friendly. Rooms are very small,bathroom tiny,but we were aware of this from reading other reviews,so it didn't come as a shock.Air -con worked well,bed firm but we got used to it. I didn't unpack my clothes as there was no room,but I don't think this is a major issue. It is a great place to base yourself,massage places and small restaurants literally at your doorstep. Great driver-Cadek has a tour desk in the hotel,he speaks English well- took us to see Tanah Lot,Monkey Forrest in Ubud,Uluwatu Temple,Bali Orchid garden and Turtle Island.
I am 46 and my husband is 57,so we had no interest in Kuta night life,but we sure saw a lot during the day. We had an hour daily massage,which start at $6 for one in an old place with no air-con to $15 at Soma Spa (Legian St,Kuta)-beautiful. A great place to shop is Discovery Mall in Kuta,all in air conditioned comfort,all shops have prices displayed and no bartering required. Fantastic restaurant on top floor with milllion dollar views of Kuta beach-highly recommend a visit here.
As long as you are aware that the men working in the shops along the streets will hassle us Aussies non-stop to buy from them,and completely ignore them,you won't have a problem. .All streets in this area are extremely busy with tourists,motorbikes,shop owners on the tiny,broken footpaths so keep your eyes on the ground-and don't tread on the offerings if you can help it.
The 101 is about a 15 min walk to Legian Beach-depending on how many times you stop to buy something. There is a Starbucks Cafe on the ground floor,night club,Day Spa and restaurant. The hotel decor may appeal to the younger travellers and has a modern feel to it,so the only negative thing I can think of to say about it is I wish there was more greenery,and stone carvings around to give it a more Balinese feel. It has a very large,strange aqua blue wall decoration that looks like scrunched up plastic that is the feature in the lobby,along with red and yellow striped sofas.The lobby is hot (no air con here) as it is open with a balcony overlooking Legian St.and very dark even in the middle of the day There are a few plants around the rooftop pool and and sereral froral decorations on the reception desk,but my overall first impression was not-I'm in Bali!!!. But again this is a minor detail,the overall stay at the 101 was great.My husband did not notice the decor and thought it was fine.. so everyone sees things differently. Would stay here again,but not in November. The temp was around $0 deg every day and 85% humidity so this makes it uncomfortable to walk around,shop,sightsee.. but I managed.
